Galaxy S8 vs LG G6: MKBHD vs MrMobile!

  • Added:  3 months ago
  • [ Check out MKBHD's version of this comparison here: ]

    The LG G6 and Samsung Galaxy S8 are two of the best smartphones of 2017 … but there’s a reason the average person may have only heard about one of them. Samsung is throwing its usual marketing muscle behind the Galaxy, for one thing, and for another … well, the S8 might just be the better phone. From features to cosmetics, the Galaxy S8 is a force to be reckoned with. But that doesn't mean you should ignore the LG G6; a wide-angle camera, MIL-STD 810G durability and a fingerprint scanner put where humans can actually use it? That's a compelling combination, one whose mantle I take up in this rare MrMobile comparison – featuring an even rarer special guest appearance! Tune in as MrMobile and his LG G6 do battle with MKBHD and his Samsung Galaxy S8! As usual, the only winner is the one YOU decide on ... but getting there is the whole point, right?

    After you watch this comparison, be sure to check out MKBHD's cut of the showdown, featuring more Galaxy S8 vs LG G6 action ... and a dollop of additional editing tomfoolery:

    Hi. Great review. I love G6. But I'm undecided between the LG G6 and the ASUS Zenfone AR. Can you make a review for the ASUS Zenfone AR? It would be really awesome.

    I would have gone for the g6

    I prefer the G6 is. It's always drowned out by Samsung. I like Samsung but the G6 is not as bloaty and much nicer looking.

    So how can I check for notifications if the fingerprint scanner is on the power button? Will pressing the power button instantly unlock the phone because of the scanner? Does does it have double tap to wake?

    I like the LG G6 much more than the Galaxy S8. The Camera, the durability and the "not round" bezels of the G6 are killer arguments for me. Also I like the G6's design much more than the S8's. So if I would buy a phone now, I would buy the G6, definitly.

    Reasons I chose LG G6: Flat screen which lets me use tempered glass protectors, and wide angle camera which is just awesome! Add to that the much lower price of the G6 and its a no brainer.

    Thus video is bull shit. The s8 is so much better in millions of ways. The LG g6 only has gorilla glass 3 I'm the front and 4 on the back. Like wtf is that. And it's icons make it look like a kids toy. But ok bash on the s8 when it is clearly better.

    So bogus to think that the LG 6 has better Camera over the Galaxy S8 when every reviews shows the opposite.

  • Michael Livote
    Michael Livote 18 days ago

    Seeing as these are so close on everything, it's really a no brainer going for the G6 as it's $250-300.00 cheaper(depending on if you go S8 or S8 plus)to buy it now, at least on T-Mobile. I've seen the G6 for even less than that at around $450.00 if you buy it outright---an amazing deal for such a great phone. The S8 may be great as well, but not hundreds of dollars more great ;)

    Please stop making phones with really easy to crack glass on BOTH sides of the phone just to make people buy new phones more often when they crack the glass! Form over function that doesn't even look good once you get some smudges on that fingerprint magnet glass.

    I still have and use the original LG GFLEX and she is doing great 4 years later. I also own LG G5 and as ugly as it is, it still kicking ass. I just bought the LG G6 and man she is perfect. No I'm not a LG fan boy, it just so happen that I have acquired the phones as gift and they just turn out to be durable as heck. I have personally bought the Sammy phones and as much as I like them I'm to damn sacred it's to fragile. Either way both companies know how to do it right.

  • M Patton
    M Patton 27 days ago

    Just switched from S8 to G6. The S8 just wasn't awesome. I had lots of stuttering. The camera was glitchy. Bixby button was annoying and the feature was pointless. Battery absolutely sucked. Never had LG before but seemed like the best alternative and 3 days in... Running Nova Launcher with a Google Pixel design and I'm loving it. I hate that LG doesn't display the proper emoji style... Those blob looking things are tough to get used to but I'll try until I move to either the Note 8 or the V30.

    I have LG G6 and i liked it more than s8 . but im going to sell it and never buying LG phones again just for one reason. The fact that you cant unlock bootloader or root your device if dont live in Europe or the US since G4 they dont allow people from other countrys to root or unlock the bootloader and that shows that they dont give a shi* about their customers

    I have the s8 really good and amazing I have really small hands OK I'm 5 feet and I can reach all the way across the phone left to right no promblem. I have a case on and the finger print sensor hasn't ever been a problem. I mean who wouldn't out a case on a 800 dollar phone unless ur a famous youtuber and lucky and all these people give u guys phones and u can break them and not care. I love the s8 and its fast and reliable.

    Samsung is the apple of the Android phones. Overpriced and a junk. I don't know why people keep buying that. I wont buy g6 is because it's last year's spec. Don't understand why people want to buy flagship price for it. Htc, op5, and pixel 2 are the way to go.

    Great video..I agree w everything you both said, I went w the G6 because of the durability and the camera and I am not a fan of the edge display not only because it makes it less durable but i cant get over how the edge looks with some videos. In my case it was a pretty easy decision but like you said no one is going home with either one of these phones dissatisfied.

  • HoneyFikkle
    HoneyFikkle Month ago

    I agree. The camera on the G6 is slightly better than the S8 but as a overall phone the S8 is thr best! No comparison required.
